Text 16 Nov 29 notes Raid on OccupySF on going, raid on OccupyCal expected

OccupyDenver → OccupyPortland → OccupyOakland  OccupyCal → OccupyWallStreet → OccupySeattle → OccupySF → OccupyCal

All in 4 days.

Big presence of riot police even through cries of “peaceful protest” and police hiding ID and badges. No reading of Miranda Rights; OccupyCal protester told “you have no rights.” Media blackout during OccupyWallStreet raid. Destruction of personal property and police brutality all around. Use of pepper spray and beatings.

Oakland’s Mayor Jean Quan has casually stated that she was in a conference call with mayors from 18 other cities on “how to deal with the Occupations.” Looks like a nation-wide crackdown. Stay safe, Occupiers.

REMAIN NON-VIOLENT SO THE PUBLIC REMAINS ON YOUR SIDE AND THE POLICE’S USE OF VIOLENCE REMAINS UNJUSTIFIED!

Edit: MAIN CAMP IN FRONT OF FEDERAL RESERVE FOR SF IS SAFE, Herman Plaza being raided though.
